Brite Student Awarded Louisville Institute two-year doctoral fellowship

May 13, 2014

Brite Divinity School student Christina Bryant has been awarded a two-year doctoral fellowship by the Louisville Institute. Bryant, a second-year Ph.D. student in Biblical Interpretation-New Testament at Brite Divinity School, received her B.A. in Religion from Furman University, and her M.T.S. in Biblical Studies from the University of Notre Dame. In addition to Ph.D. work, Christina is also college campus minister at the Catholic Campus Ministry at Southern Methodist University. Seeing biblical education as ministry, Christina hopes to work as an undergraduate professor following the completion of her Ph.D.

The Louisville Institute awards two-year fellowships to ten current Ph.D. or Th.D. students considering theological education as their vocation. Doctoral Fellows meet as a colloquium three times during each fellowship year. Louisville Institution is funded by the Religion Division of Lilly Endowment and based at Louisville Presbyterian Seminary (Louisville, KY). The Institute’s fundamental mission is to enrich the religious life of North American Christians and to encourage the revitalization of their institutes, by bringing together those who lead religious institutes with those who study them, so that the work each might inform and strengthen the other.
